Impact Presents: A Panel on Affordable Housing Solutions

Join us for a virtual Impact session on Wednesday, February 17 from 5 pm to 6 pm. Impact presents a conversation with Atticus LeBlanc and Bill McGahan moderated by Elora Raymond.

Atticus is the founder of PadSplit, Inc and co-founder of Stryant Investments, LLC, and Stryant Construction & Management.  He has been an affordable housing advocate and investor since 2008, when he began acquiring distressed single-family homes in Southwest Atlanta.

PadSplit was founded in 2017 after earning a grant from the Enterprise Community Foundation’s ATLChallenge affordable housing competition.  PadSplit was based on the concept that shared housing in a single-family setting could provide attractive, accountable, & affordable housing without the need for public subsidy.  The company was featured in the 2018 Cox/Techstars cohort, and is rapidly expanding.

Bill founded Georgia Works! because he believes every life has value, and virtually every person can be given the tools and habits to make their lives better.  Many men simply have horrible habits, role models and environments. Bill has been involved in many community organizations and non-profit boards including: The State of Georgia Housing Trust Fund for the Homeless Commission; Atlanta Area Co-Chair of the Steering Committee for the Governors Office of Transition, Support and Reentry; From Houses to Homes; Atlanta Academy; The Howard School, The Paces Civic Association; and The National Foundation for Facial Reconstruction. Bill earned a Bachelor's Degree in Economics from Southern Methodist University, and an MBA from the University of Virginia. He and his wife Lisa have four children. They reside in Atlanta.

The 2020/21 series will feature conversations on race, social justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion.
